As coronavirus spreads both in the U.S. and abroad, it’s affecting adoption agencies.
Children’s Home Society and Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota work together. They have partnerships with adoption agencies around the world.
“Right now, we're seeing visas not being issued in some countries,” said Alexis Oberdorfer, president of Children’s Home Society and associate vice president for Lutheran Social Service.
“Folks that are involved in different places in the process are going to be slowed down or delayed as a result of this.”
